Cardano also outperformed Bitcoin and Ethereum in adjusted volumes, with a 24-hour volume of $17.15 billion, while the latter coins managed to record $4.67 billion and $4.25 billion respectively.

Comparing transaction fees, Cardano users paid only $51,985.43 within 24 hours, while Bitcoin and Ethereum users paid $0.51 million and $19.39 million respectively.

Cardano, which has been tagged as a ghost chain now has a number of decentralized applications (DApps) running on top of its blockchain. And the number of wallets holding ADA has also surpassed three million.

A Cardano enthusiast shared the new height with the community members a couple of hours ago.

“Cardano’s in 1st place for most transaction activity (Adjusted Volume last 24 hrs) It overtook BTC and Ethereum.  Adjusted transaction volume is a way to isolate only meaningful transactions and fairly compare utxo & account models. Look at the fees.”
